Development and growth opportunities also serve as a great source of acknowledgement and recognition to help retain employees and increase job satisfaction.
It's a leader's responsibility that all employees, not only high performers, have opportunities for development and enrichment in their job. Encourage your team to participate in the many workshops available on the Learning Events Calendar.
Consider other development opportunities for recognition such as:
- Inviting employees to join meetings with senior leaders to give them exposure and highlight their contributions.
- Have an employee represent you on a committee or at an important meeting to gain experience and develop interdepartmental connections.
- Offer special projects that align with an employee’s interests or career goals.
- Provide opportunities to attend conferences or workshops.
